Does the files tab in Chat (not channels) actually work?

New Contributor



Does this files tab actually show anything uploaded or shared in this chat? I know how it works in a Teams Channel, but what about smaller 1-1 chats (for example)?


I had a client, apparently, lose a dozen files in their Files tab, but I've never seen it work

Yes it works. I can see lots of files in some 1:1 chats that I have with my colleagues.
Although, not sure why it's not working in your case...

Hi, adding to the above that there's an ongoing service degradation that's affecting the Files tab.
